He was politically inspired by Giuseppe Mazzini's thought and wanted to engage for the independence of Veneto and a united Italy.

“Giustizia, verità, virtù! Tre ottime cose, tre parole; tre idee da innamorare un'anima fino alla pazzia e alla morte; ma chi le avrebbe recate di cielo in terra, per usare l'espressione di Socrate? Questa era la spina del mio cuore; e non la capiva allora così chiaramente, ma la mi doleva a sangue. Nuove istituzioni, nuove leggi, diceva Amilcare, formano uomini nuovi. Ma a volerlo anche credere, chi avrebbe dato queste ottime istituzioni, queste leggi eccellenti? Non certo gli inetti e spensierati governanti d'allora. Chi dunque?...
